    Cool Hand held Kodak "EasyShare" through the windshield...

    while stopped at the intersection of highway 290/281 west of Austin, Texas on Dec 14, 2005. The sunsets in the Hill Country of Texas are as beautiful as anywhere in the world I think... I grabbed the little snapshot Kodak from the seat beside me, steadied it on top of the steering wheel and quickly snapped this shot. The original is 2580X1932 but I cropped and resized it to 1280X800 for my widescreen monitor resolution. A couple of weeks later I acquired a high end Canon digital DSLR kit/lenses but I don't think the better equipment would have taken a nicer shot than this one...
    Best,
    Ron

    Beautiful colors!
    I would spend a few minutes and remove the annoying light pole from the scene.

    Hi, Dan. Actually, the silhouette of the light pole on the left and the building on the right are two of the elements I really like in the pic. The obvious man made lines offer such a stark contrast to the natural beauty of the shot. Notice the TV antenna on the building? This was before television went all digital here in the States. For me, it helps "date" the photo a bit. When I first loaded the pic on the computer, I was a little disappointed to see the objects "disrupting the flow" of the shot but the more I studied it, the better I liked it. Another reason I wanted to leave them in... whenever I visit my Mom (almost 90 now) in Blanco, I have to stop at this intersection on the route. With the pic as it is, I'll be able to remember the trips I made to see her whenever I view the pic. I tried to load this pic into "Google Earth" at the location but I'm not PC literate enough to succeed I suppose... You are correct about the colors for sure. I've seen very few sunset photos as vivid as this one and it will always be special for me...
    Best,
    Ron

    Congrats, very beautiful! I agree that the pole should stay, it adds to the pic.

    Hi, Restless. Thanks. :thanks Yes, the more I look at the composition, the more I like it. I truly was extremely lucky to have snagged that shot. I intend to send the photo to the editors of the magazine "Texas Highways" which is a travel magazine for the state of Texas. I would love to see it published in that periodical. A few years ago I was fortunate to have had a photo (my daghter's watch on a bed of corks) published in "Falstaff" which is a wine magazine in Austria. Always fun to know that others enjoy the results of this fun hobby as I do.
    Best,
    Ron

    That is very nice shot. I noticed that in US you can often see such a sunsets, which I never seen in Europe, at least in that part of it where I live (or used to live)
    Of course the pole and roof silhuete add some meaning to the shot.

    By the way, congratulations with moderating status Ron. I missed that somehow.
